Featured album: this is our time

The album’s title track “This Is Our Time” was one of a half dozen un-recorded love songs penned by Bruce over the years, but never recorded. He presented several of these songs as an anniversary gift to Elaine in 2015, with initially no thought of releasing them publicly. Recording started in Nashville with several great musicians, including the legendary session pianist John Barlow Jarvis (featured on Little Things, I Guess We’re the Last, Memory of Your Kiss and Saved By Love). Several months later, additional songs were recorded in Toronto with noted Canadian jazz pianist, Mike Janzen.

Fall 2021 Update

Hi All,

With international travel finally starting to open up, I travelled to the United Kingdom via Iceland this October for creative meetings with friends at Wonderborn Studios and Three Arrows Media in the beautiful city of Bristol. The six night stop-over in Iceland was amazing and afforded me the opportunity to visit the capital city of Reykjavick and Höfði, the former French consulate where U.S. President Ronald Reagan and General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, met on 11–12 October 1986 for that historic summit meeting. It was at this very location that the video of “Peace On Earth”, (the song that I composed for the United Nations International Year of Peace that same year) was played for the two world leaders.

You can read more about that remarkable event and view the video that Presidents Reagan and Gorbechev watched, here.

It was also great to have Elaine join me on this trip. Taking in the awe-inspiring vistas of Iceland’s mountains, glaciers and volcanos is something that needs to be a shared experience! We traveled from Iceland to England where I had creative development meetings at Wonderborn Studios in Bristol. Wonderborn is the creation and passion of the gifted entrepreneur and CEO, Toby Hughes. His company’s goal is “to inspire and awaken wonder across the generations.” I love that. Three Arrows Media, a world-class producer of award-winning children’s and family media, is a fully owned subsidiary of Wonderborn and together they are creating some amazing new content for kids. It’s a pleasure to be working with this amazing team on the creation of original content that can have a positive impact.

In a world that seems increasingly angry and divided, music, art and entertainment that present a positive message of love and unity can make a difference. Content that places values above politics, compassion above self-interest, grace and forgiveness above judgement and blame. In the words of a great old song, this is “what the world needs now.”

The Prayer of Saint Francis perhaps says it best;

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offence, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light…

Something to reflect on as we head into this season of peace on earth and good will.
